Waste to Energy and Land Reclamation
The Dong Thanh Landfill is one of the three most polluted areas in HCMC. A sizable budget is currently being spent to maintain and operate a treatment plant to minimize the effects of the landfill’s leakages to the surrounding areas with a population of around 10,000 residents. Despite this effort, HCMC is not convinced that this is the optimal solution to manage the contamination problem.
HCMC intends to urbanize the Hoc Mon District and make the District an environmentally friendly place for people to live with the objective being not only to thoroughly de-contaminated the Dong Thanh Landfill but ensure the balance between environmental, economic and social wellbeing of its residents. The clean environment will benefit the city as well as the business community.
